The New Sound of Numbers, Phoenicians, DJ Mahogany

The official AthFestivities wind down Sunday around dusk, but, thankfully, there always seems to be one enterprising club that steps up and provides a fitting indoor party to close out the weekend. This year it’s The World Famous, where you can catch a legitimate newbie—promising Brooklyn/Atlanta-based experimental psych-rock outfit Phoenicians, playing its first-ever show—as well as a performance from entrenched vibe-pop locals the New Sound of Numbers. And, of course, there’s no more fitting way to end a totally Athens weekend than with a dance party courtesy of our most totally Athens DJ. Keep the party going, eh?
